Captain America: The Winter Soldier

captain-america-the-winter-soldier-title_25Yes, of course, I’ve been waiting to see this movie from the moment they announced it was going to be made.  Captain America (Chris Evans) is easily my favorite Avenger, apologies to the very hot Hawkeye.  Prior to seeing the first Captain America movie I hadn’t read a comic or seen a cartoon with this character, but after viewing I was completely a fan.  You see the reason I like Captain America more than other heroes is that he doesn’t fit the trend.  There are just too many, fast wheeling, irresponsible guys who suddenly have a great tragedy befall them then they grow up and become super.  Think Iron Man, Green Hornet, Thor, etc.  Then you have the born supers, Wonder Woman and Superman.  But Captain America, he was just a kid from Brooklyn.  He had hero qualities even before the serum; it just enabled him to be able to use them on a grander scale.

Anyway back to the movie.  I’ve seen several places where people have written that this was the movie that Captain America deserved, basically dissing the first movie.  I’ll correct them; this definitely was the sequel he deserved.  Without the first movie laying the groundwork, and still excellent in its own right, the sequel wouldn’t have meant anything.

Of course I’m not going to spoil it for you but I will tell you some of the reasons why this movie is probably my favorite Marvel sequel to date.
